Title: NCCOS Assessment: Water Quality Data to Assess Eutrophication Effects on Coral Ecosystem Health in Vatia Bay, American Samoa from 2015-05-13 to 2018-08-28 (NCEI Accession 0208020)
Abstract: This dataset represents three years of water quality data collected in Vatia Bay, American Samoa. A standard suite of nutrient parameters (nitrate, nitrite, ammonium, urea, total nitrogen, orthophosphate, total phosphorus and silica), as well as tracers of human waste (sucralose and caffeine) were quantified at sixteen randomly selected sites (surface and bottom samples) monthly from 2015 to 2017. In 2018, sampling efforts focused on capturing precipitation events, so the sampling was conducted at less regular intervals.
